Australian Aaron Baddeley has tied for fourth place as the US PGA Tour's season-opening event heads into a three-man, sudden-death playoff.

His father, Bob Tway, was an eight-time victor on the PGA Tour who captured the 1986 PGA Championship by sinking a bunker shot on the last hole to defeat Greg Norman.

Snedeker could only manage par on the first playoff hole, the 18th, while Moore and Tway both hit birdies on the first two playoff holes.

The veteran made three straight back-nine bogeys to bring a number of players back into the fold, and seemingly lost control of his swing while missing a number of greens with short irons or wedges in hand.

Kevin Tway birdied his last five holes, three in a playoff, to win his first US PGA Tour title on Sunday at the Safeway Open, where Brandt Snedeker squandered a five-shot lead in the final round.

Needing to birdie the par-5 18th to win, Snedeker instead found a fairway bunker off the tee, pushed his second shot into the rough and couldn't get closer than 48 feet with his approach.

Friends of Khashoggi say Turkish police have taken possession of footage from the neighbourhood as part of their investigation. Khashoggi, 59, went missing while on a visit to the consulate in Istanbul for paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancée.

Moore also birdied the first two playoff holes to stay alive, but he missed his birdie attempt at No. 10 before Tway sank the victor.

"I'm sure he's crying because he's pretty proud of me", said the younger Tway, whose only other pro victory came in the 2013 Albertsons Boise Open on the Web.com Tour.

"I'm going to look back on that one in a few years, really gave that one away", Snedeker told reporters.

The trio finished regulation at 14-under 274.

"I was just able to put together a round of golf", said Moore, who had six birdies and just one bogey.

Moore, who started the day seven shots behind Snedeker, was happy just to have been in contention.
